    The burning of a train in the village of Godhra, in India's Gujarat state, in 2002 killed 59 Hindu pilgrims.

    Rightist Hindu politicians blamed Muslims for the fire and it led to Indian's worst religious violence in years, killing about 2,000 people, mostly Muslims

    After a trial lasting almost nine years, 59 people were found guilty.
